SANTA FE, N.M., Nov. 15, 2022 /BNtheMix/ — State Employees Credit Union is pleased to continue its support of Children’s Miracle Network for the 5th annual fall fundraiser and Cars for Kids car show. During the month of October, State ECU encouraged members and employees to raise critical funds to help sick kids have a more positive experience as they heal by asking for member donations at their branches, gift basket raffles, and through a match program for every auto loan that was financed at State ECU this summer. State ECU donated $1 for every $1,000 financed May through August.
This year, the initiative raised $100,000 to support an important resource for children, The Connected Academy. The Connected Academy is an on-site learning program at University of New Mexico Children’s Hospital that allows children in the hospital to keep up with their studies and return to their local schools when their health improves.
“We welcomed back the community for our Cars for Kids Car Show on October 22. This day of music and classic cars, with entertainment, food, and a kids’ zone, was a fun way to bring the community together to support the Children’s Miracle Network on a beautiful fall day in Santa Fe,” says Andy Ramos, State ECU President and CEO. “We thank everyone for their five years of continued support and dedication to this organization that provides such a vital service in the community. Every single donation, large and small, helps make a difference for children right here in New Mexico.”
